    Yep, it gut is directly linked to the mind. I sometimes wake in the morning so anxious that I vomit bile. I haven't gone to the toilet properly in weeks. I've been told eat smaller meals more often, eat foods higher in fiber, and not to eat too late in the night. Drink plenty of water too!

    This is so up and coming between the gut and anxiety. They are even in trials with pre and pro biotics they feel the gut gets messed up forst then malabsorption and poor digestion occur leading to anxiety issues. Most probiotics suppliments do not even make it to the gut the acids destroy them. But they are working on this. So yes every single person with an anxiety disorder has stomach issues. On this theory i recently began juicing..roo soon to say but foods make a huge tremendous difference on how you eill function and feel. It is not hype. But you first needs to knwo what your belly can and will tolerate. You can bring down your diet to the simplest foods and keep a log for a out two weeks of food you eat and after effects. Might be very helpful for you. Caffiene, sodas, foods with many chemicals should be out, try to keep it to whole foods, clean foods so you get a clear picture of what you can tolerate. You can even do a DASH diet, heary healthy if you dont know where to begin. Thats actually where i started. I removed fake sweetners Comoletely that is ine interesting chemical that i feel much better without. Sorbitol was another issue but i think thats a fake sweetner too. Give it a try. Good luck.

    Hi Tara if it's not too personal and not tmi for everyone else what's ur toilet problems? My anxiety is off the scale because of this but because of health anxiety and fear of all things medical it's ruining/ruined my life. I can't go to docs because of fear. It would be really helpful to know about others. You or anyone else can pm me if you think it's too personal. Thanks in advance. E.
